Clip for my Solo leg Day yesterday...Conditioning check and posing in between sets at the beginning, right into my second to last set!
💥💥Stability Ball Hack Squats💥💥
- Safety - When done correctly*** DO NOT FULLY BOUNCE!!!!
- Adductor activation
- Overloading the Muscles
This is a great variation to try out, but it is CRUCIAL that you do them correctly! First and foremost DO NOT let your weight fully bounce off of the Stability Ball!!!!! Your Bodyweight plus the weight of the sled plus whatever weight you have on there is WAY too much for the Stability Ball to handle! Too much force if you just drop and bounce, or try to! That is a disaster waiting to happen... but I am sure some shmuck out there won’t read my post and will just watch the video and try it, and will end up popping a Ball, and hopefully not his knees! Keep constant tension on the legs throughout the ENTIRE movement and range of motion! Do NOT let yourself drop and bounce to rebound off the ball! Instead control the movement and focus on the mind muscle connection, firing those muscle fibers fully and efficiently! Set your stance so that your knees/legs are driving into the ball, so you can focus and target your adductor muscles! This is crucial when developing striated and separated quads! Great variation to use just to switch things up and hit the muscles in a different way, or to do on a day like I did here, when I was by myself and didn’t have anyone there to spot me! Still was able to work up to 10 plates for sets of 8-10 HEAVY, and no Balls were popped!!! Also a great variation to try if you have trouble hitting full depth below 90 degrees, it can help build your mobility and confidence! Just make sure to start light and focus on doing it correctly! NO BOUNCING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This ain’t no darn Trampoline! Let me know what you think!!! 👊🏼✌🏼👍🏼💪🏼#CoachBarbsFitTips #HackSquat #HackSquats #squat #squats #mobility #strength #strengthtraining #weightlifting #bodybuilding #classicbodybuilding #classicphysique #atilis #atilisgymbellmawr #atilisbellmawr #atilisgym #TeamGaspari #barbsphenomphysiques #TeamBP2 #BP2Squad #coach #coaching #onlinecoach #prepcoach #lifecoach #fittips
